Peng Qiu received his B.S. degree from the University of Science and Technology of China, and a Ph.D. degree from the University of Maryland College Park, both in electrical engineering. After spending three years as a postdoctoral fellow in the Center for Cancer Systems Biology at Stanford, and three years as an assistant professor in the Department of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology at UT MD Anderson Cancer Center, he joined the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University.
